Abstract

Magnet hospitals were surveyed to determine the processes used to promote the integrity of nursing research conducted in clinical settings. Results indicated that four central processes, institutional review board review, nursing research council review, nursing research mentorship, and reliance on personal and professional values, were used to educate, monitor, and oversee the integrity of research conducted by bedside nurse scientists. Staff development educators are challenged to provide instruction regarding the process of nursing research and all elements of scientific integrity. Research is needed to test the effectiveness of the processes identified in this investigation in promoting the quality and integrity of nursing research conducted in clinical settings.
